Our Journey To Charlie & Levi...

After 17yrs of marriage and "8" amazing children, God has continued to keep the fire for adoption burning in our hearts. Crazy?... Maybe?!?! But....Doesn't God call all of us to do CRAZY things for him? Isn't that what it means to Live for Christ? To make a difference ONE orphan at a time. So after months of praying that this little guy would find a forever family, he FINALLY has!! OUR FAMILY!! Join us as we pray, cry, fill out mounds of paperwork & fundraise to bring our son home. We give God all the glory for choosing to adopt us & for giving us the opportunity to Choose Charlie...And because we could not get Zhora(Levi) off our minds and God obviously placed him in our hearts... We're bringing him home too!!

Still Alive & Kickin'

It's been a while since I've posted. Things are busy here, but great! I can't believe it has been 8 weeks since the boys joined our family. Levi has been feeling better and better everyday. I think for the first time in his almost 4yrs he actually feels well!! We are finding that there is a little stinker behind that sweet little toothless smile. Ha!!! Tomorrow we are making the 4 hr drive to Cook Children's to see a cardiologist. Hoping to find out if we are or are not going to have to have heart surgery. He is still getting meds twice a day through his picc line and his labs have been good:) He is also getting meds for urinary issues as well:( Hopefully that will resolve. He absolutely loves to "Go". If any one heads to the door, grabs keys or puts a jacket on; He's running to put on his hat, jacket, and shoes. lol Charlie is doing great! He loves school & he is like a little sponge. He is having an echo on Wed. & we are trying to get him in to see what is going on with his vision & hearing on his right side. Oh, and apparently he had a hernia repair surgery that they didn't tell us about. Ooops!! Our entire family is so Blessed!! Everyone is adjusting well & most days it feels like our two newbies have been with us forever!


  1. Charlie was my 2009 RR Angel, and I just hung his ornament on this year's tree yesterday evening, along with ornaments for two 2010 Angels, both of whom have committed families now. What a blessing to know that like Charlie, these two little ones will be home for Christmas next year!

    So glad both your little guys are doing so well. They are precious, and are blooming beautifully in their forever family...
